We aimed to determine how to approach the axilla after finding a positive sentinel node (SN) for a woman with breast cancer in Taiwan. We used blue dye staining to identify the SN in 824 procedures on 811 patients with breast cancer small than 3 cm by a single surgeon. All patients underwent SN biopsy, followed by at least level II axillary dissection. All SNs were evaluated histologically and immunohistochemically with anti-cytokeratin antibodies. Non-SNs were examined by routine histology… CONTINUE READING
